Analysis of the constituency
BBC political reporter
Kingswood is the most marginal seat in the BBC Radio Bristol area - and one Labour should be winning back if they have any hope of getting into power.
But Ashcroft polls in April put the Tories ahead - even more so than in 2010 - which would see Chris Skidmore re-elected.
But the collapse of the Liberal Democrat vote and the rise of UKIP will be big factors in the final result here.
The seat of Kingswood is situated in south Gloucestershire, on the eastern border of the city of Bristol, with many residents commuting to the city to work. Major employers locally includeRolls-Royce, which has a defence aerospace site in Bristol, Royal Mail and insurance firm SunLife,which is headquartered nearby. Smaller-scale local industries and manufacturing businesses have been in steep decline in recent decades.
Just under 18% of working-age residents in this seat are in part-time employment, according to ONS 2011 Census statistics for England and Wales, which is the highest constituency ranking. The Conservatives regained this seat, which was established in 1974, from Labour at the 2010 election after 18 years of Labour rule. Chris Skidmore won 40.4% of the vote, followed by Labour on 35.3%, Liberal Democrats 16.8% and UKIP 3.2%.
